Those that are in the Molium section,such as the lovely A. zebdanense (photos forthcoming) are dormant immediately after the spring bloom and don't emerge until next spring.  It's one of the very best and one of my favorites. All of these types have a very short growth period.   Section Molium (e.g. A. neapolitanum, roseum, subhirsutum and subvillosum, chamaemoly, trifoliatum).

Dear Mark,
In our mediterranean climat the species of section molium (may I add to
this A triquetrum, subhirsitum, jajlae?) start growing  s soon as the 
eseptember showers are upon us and dormancy sets in  early mai
